Neighborhood Grant (S.I.N.G.)
The mission of SingFit’s Inclusivity Neighborhood Grant is to increase the availability and accessibility of therapeutic music to priority communities
for cognitive health and wellness.
Through our S.I.N.G. Initiative, SingFit will provide up to 3 eligible community-based nonprofit organizations a free 12-month subscription to either the SingFit STUDIO digital health platform or SingFit TV solution. Interested community organizations will have the opportunity to complete a 2-phase application which consists of a short application and interview. Applications are open annually from November 1st-30th in recognition of Alzheimer's Awareness Month.
Primarily serves high-risk populations for cognitive decline (see below)
Primarily serves older adults 55+
Eligible for S.I.N.G.
SingFit STUDIO dynamically improves cognitive health and well-being through personalized therapeutic music. STUDIO is designed for rehab therapists or caregivers to engage in therapeutic singing and conversation with older adults experiencing cognitive impairment.
SingFit TV provides streaming episodes that can be watched anytime, anywhere from your internet-connected device. Each SingFit TV episode consists of a six-song SingFit session complete with trivia, reminiscence elements and movements.
"Studies have demonstrated ways music therapy can successfully protect several specific cognitive domains—including autobiographical and episodic memories, psychomotor speed, executive function—and overall global cognition in people with Alzheimer’s disease. One solution, SingFit, actually draws upon this science, while leveraging novel technology and innovations, to make the benefits of music therapy widely available, uniquely engaging, and positively impactful for people with dementia."
-Dr. Scott Kaiser, Geriatrician and
Director of Geriatric Cognitive Health
